Synopsis
Virtually every character created by the SCTV cast makes a guest appearance in this episode, which is given coherence by an ongoing (and seemingly never-ending) staff party. Among the highlights: John Candy recreates Orson Welles' famously profane commercial-outtake tape, as part of "Liberace's Musical Tribute to the Holidays." Raunchy entertainer Dusty Towne (Catherine O'Hara) duets with Divine (John Candy) on her own "Sexy Holiday Special." And SCTV Cable and Ugazzo Home Vision combine forces to present "Neil Simon's Nutcracker Suite," starring a lachrymose Marsha Mason (Andrea Martin), an intrusive Richard Dreyfuss (Rick Moranis), a wisecracking Judd Hirsch (Eugene Levy), and Alan Alda (Joe Flaherty) as The Nutcracker Prince. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
